Don't Mess with Texas Mockingbirds!

A couple of nights ago I headed out side to toss a some trash in the dumpster. As soon as I stepped on the front porch, a momma Mockingbird, which if you follow the link you will learn that they are the state birds of Texas, came flying at my head. She was not happy to have me standing on the porch.

Turns out she has a nest and three eggs in one of my hanging plants. No wonder she was defending my porch so mightily.

This morning the kids and I were able to sneak a peek into her nest when she wasn't home. Hopefully they will hatch soon and momma will quit dive bombing me when I walk on the porch.
